Cancer – just bad luck

Your risk of getting cancer may just be down to ‘bad luck’.  According to a recent study.

However, according to Cancer Research UK, over a third of the most common cancers are still down to lifestyle, so it’s no excuse to start drinking, smoking and over-eating.  In fact smoking is a significant factor in many types of cancer.

While the study says that a chance mutation is what causes many types of cancer, what causes that mutation may be more than just ‘chance’.  It could be due to any number of environmental factors – what’s in our food, chemical pollution, stress, who knows what else they’ll discover as a result of further research.
